homeschool: how it works

96% of people choose the Homeschool program.


1: create a custom training plan

Schedule a consultation with our dog trainers near you.  We'll help you create a custom training plan tailored to your family and lifestyle.

Set your focus on basic obedience, puppy training, off-leash or advanced obedience, CGC, a city-specific off-leash permit, or behavior issues such as leash aggression or resource guarding.

2: complete a 3-week program

Monday through Thursday each week consists of one-on-one training sessions between dog(s) and trainer in your home and neighborhood.  This minimizes distractions for both dog and trainer so learning can efficiently take place. You do not need to be home.

Friday each week consists of a private coaching session with the family to see what the dog has learned and to practice it themselves.  

Videos from training sessions are sent daily. 

3: join the club

Following your 3 week program, your dog has lifetime priority access to our Petsitting Program, our Varsity Subscription, and After-School Programs like agility, nosework, rally obedience, trick training, and more! 

In addition, the Homeschool program includes 2 free follow-up sessions.
